League of Champions

Everyone – patients, family, healthcare providers and healthcare organizations – is responsible for patient safety. Working together, we can make a difference and improve patient safety in healthcare settings across Manitoba. In order to recognize the passion of patient safety champions in Manitoba, we have established the Manitoba Institute for Patient Safety League of Champions.

Who will be invited to join our League of Champions?

Individuals who:

• take action to support/promote/advocate for patient safety strategies

• engage patient safety as a leader, contributing to the improvement of patient safety

• inspire others to take action to improve patient safety

• leverage their resources to extend the patient safety message

What are our expectations of the members of our League of Champions?

We hope that our champions will:

• increase the voice of patient safety through the healthcare system

• leverage their contacts in the community and health system

• participate in periodic MIPS’ focus groups and consultations

• promote MIPS and our volunteer program

• consent to be added to our League of Champions on-line roster to build a collection of voices intent on improving the culture of patient safety in Manitoba.
